Beef Lightning Megaways slot review (Big Time Gaming)

I continue to love the new Big Time Gaming slots. And even more so when they introduce a new Megaways slot. When you look at our favourite Megaways slots, you see that many are Big Time Gaming ones. Will this one become as good as slots like Extra Chile Megaways, Monopoly Megaways or Holy Diver Megaways, to name a few?

Beef Lightning Megaways – wheeling and dealing cattle

Time will tell, but this slot is undoubtedly one of the better ones.

I love the free spins, which is original and very, but very thrilling. The win potential is outrageous, and if you’re very fortunate, you may auction yourself into a 56,000x win! And again, can we include another slot in our list of slots where the max win is over 50,000x.


Number of paylines: up to 117,649 Megaways

RTP and variance: 96.43%, Extreme Variance

Maximum win: 56,000x the bet

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€7.5

Bonus features: Free Spins

Casino Hipster verdict: HOT. Excellent and original gameplay and incredibly thrilling.

Gameplay and Features

It’s all about the cows in this game. The idea is to auction these when you get to the free spins. In addition, you can win the beauty contest.

It’s a Megaways slot with 6 reels and up to 117,649 Megaways. Like with most Megaways slots, the game works with the Avalanche (or Cascading) feature, where you gain a free re-spin following a win and where winning symbols explode and make way for new symbols.

The high paying symbols are a mighty Bull, a Cow, a Cow Bell and Horse Shoe. A six-of-a-kind of Bulls or Cows get you a 20x and a 2.5x win, respectively. The lows are the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

We also have WILD symbols and gold-plated Scatter symbols.


Duplicating Wilds

On some occasions, when you land a Wild, you trigger the Wild Duplications. In that case, all symbols on that reel are replaced by Wilds. These occur in the free re-spins (reactions).

How to win the free spins

You gain 12 free spins if you manage to spin 3 Scatters (with the letters “M.O.O.”).

Each additional Scatter gets you another 4 free spins.

Bonus Coins

During the free spins, you’ll see Bonus Coins.

These Bonus Coins turn around and either get you a Retrigger, a Brown Cow, a Cow Auction Bid or a Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal.

The Free spins – the auction

You have one brown-coloured Cow at the start, which you see at the bottom and left-hand side of the screen.

During the free spins, you may get a Cow Auction Bid (see the green-golden hammers). If you’re lucky, you win more brown Cows during the free spins as well.

At the end of the free spins, your total payout is the number of brown Cows multiplied by the total bids offered for the cows.

The Free spins – the beauty contest

Besides the auction, you also participate in the beauty contest.

If you manage to collect 5 Golden Medals, or 4 Silver Medals or 3 Bronze Medals, you’ll win a prize of 25,000x or 2,500x or 500x the stake. Mooohhhh!

Beef Lightning Megaways – the Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.43

Like most Big Time Gaming slots, we’re talking about a pretty good RTP.

Beef Lightning Megaways – the variance (volatility) is extremely high

The maximum win is an insane 56,000x the bet, and I guess we all know that it translates into a towering high variance slot. The maximum stake is limited to $€ 7,50, and that’s for a reason!
